Raiders beat:

latest news at page 1:

    The Raiders should be upset that a WFT defender got away with pass interference on the biggest play of the game, but Cowboys fans should be just as angry. Whenever the Dallas Cowboys faced the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day, they couldn’t stop drawing pass interference penalties. Cornerback Anthony Brown alone was called for four such infractions totaling 91 yards, including an ultimately decisive call in overtime. Some of those calls were warranted while others were questionable at best. So imagine then watching a division rival such as the Washington Football Team play the same Raiders and experiencing a completely different outcome from the refs, particularly on the biggest play of the game. After WFT took a two-point lead, Las Vegas had the chance to drive down the field and retake the lead, albeit with little time remaining. Derek Carr then seemingly had a deep shot to Zay Jones open but a Washington defender tugged on the jersey and seemingly impeded the wide receiver. When the pass fell incomplete, though, there was no laundry on the field for a PI call....
    Jon Gruden resigned from his job as the Las Vegas Raiders head coach seven weeks ago, but his advice was echoing in Derek Carr’s head during Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Raiders, in the midst of a disappointing three-game losing skid, were locked in a passing battle with the Cowboys that would eventually see Carr throw for 373 yards while Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 375 yards. But it wasn’t the yardage Carr was thinking about, but rather being the aggressor and getting more points.

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders got the third-down help they needed from Dallas cornerback Anthony Brown. Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime after Brown’s fourth pass-interference penalty kept the drive alive, and the Raiders ended a three-game losing streak by beating the Cowboys 36-33 on Thursday. READ MORE: Motorcyclist Killed After Hitting Sign Along I-80 In Placer CountyCarlson’s career-best fifth field goal came after Brown was called for interference on Zay Jones on third-and-18. All four of Brown’s interference penalties came on third-down incompletions. “The penalties obviously helped,” said Carr, whose 373 yards passing included a 56-yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson for the first points. “If they weren’t holding, we probably would have hit those plays.” The Raiders had just two third-down conversions total the previous two games and were 3 of 13 in this one. But Brown topped that total all by himself. “Just one of them days,” Brown said. “I feel like I was in position for all of them, tried to turn my head. On some of them...
    Daniel Carlson came up huge for the Las Vegas Raiders with a pair of clutch kicks and he was literally willing to do anything to play against the Cowboys.  The Thanksgiving matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys was full of big plays — even if an uncomfortable amount of those plays were the result of penalties. But you could argue that Vegas kicker Daniel Carlson came up with two of the biggest. As part of the five field goals that the kicker drilled through the uprights for a perfect day at the office (he was 3-of-3 on extra points as well), Carlson’s biggest boot came just after the two-minute warning when he blasted a 56-yard field goal to give his team a three-point lead. Even after Dallas tied things up and forced overtime, Carlson and the Raiders wouldn’t be deterred. So, despite timeouts and penalties keeping him iced for quite a while by normal standards, he stepped up and drilled the game-winner in overtime to give Las Vegas the 36-33 win. It turns out, however, that Carlson was...

Carlson’s fifth field goal came after Brown was called for interference on Zay Jones on third-and-18. All four of Brown’s interference penalties came on third-down incompletions. The Raiders (6-5) ended a three-game losing streak with their first Thanksgiving victory since 1968. It was their fourth appearance on the holiday since then, with the previous two losses coming at the Cowboys. Carlson put Las Vegas ahead 33-30 with a career-long 56-yarder with 1:52 remaining. Greg Zuerlein, who missed an extra point after the first Dallas TD, answered with a 45-yarder with 19 seconds to go.

    When is the last time Texas Tech football beat Oklahoma football? Not even Patrick Mahomes could beat Oklahoma during his time with the Red Raiders. Patrick Mahomes may be one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, but as a Red Raider, he never beat Oklahoma, including a famous duel with Baker Mayfield in 2016. While Mahomes performs better than Mayfield in the NFL, Mahomes’ narrow 66-59 loss to Mayfield’s Sooners demonstrates just how dominant the Sooners have been over the Red Raiders for nearly 30 years. Since 1992, Oklahoma has won 22 out of 28 games against Texas Tech. That means Texas Tech has only won six times during that time period, and it was exactly 10 years ago in 2011.Texas Tech: When was the last time Texas Tech beat Oklahoma?In 2011, Texas Tech headed to Norman, Oklahoma, for what was projected to be another loss to Oklahoma. At that point, Texas Tech had only won one away game against Oklahoma, and the Sooners were ranked No. 3 at the time. It was a historic win: not only did it notch...
    Derek Carr threw for 323 yards, completing 31 of 34 pass attempts with one touchdown, and the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 33-22. The Raiders (5-2) outgained Philadelphia 443-358 in a dominating performance that saw Las Vegas score on five straight possessions after its first series ended with Carr being intercepted inside the Eagles 5-yard line. It was Las Vegas’ second straight win since former coach Jon Gruden resigned Oct. 11 because of offensive emails he sent before being hired in 2018. Under interim coach Rich Bisaccia, the Raiders have outscored Denver and Philadelphia 67-46 collectively, and outgained both 869-779.

    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Skylar Thompson passed for 296 yards and the game-winning touchdown and Kansas State came up with sacks on Texas Tech’s final two plays to take a 25-24 victory Saturday. Thompson’s TD pass to Deuce Vaughn with just over six minutes left helped the Wildcats snap an eight-game Big 12 Conference losing streak. The Red Raiders (5-3, 2-3) were driving into field-goal range with two first downs, reaching K-State’s 46-yard-line with three minutes to go. But the Wildcats’ defense came up big when Felix Anudike-Uzomah sacked Texas Tech quarterback Henry Colombi for a 6-yard loss and Nate Matlack dropped him for a 1-yard loss. K-State (4-3, 1-3) fought back to take the 25-24 lead with a drive aided when Texas Tech’s Devin Drew was flagged for a hands-to-the-face penalty on a play that would have ended with the Wildcats facing fourth-and-16. Instead, K-State got an automatic first down and quarterback Skylar Thompson threw four consecutive completions, the last to Vaughn for a 22-yard touchdown. Kansas State climbed back into the game with a third-quarter safety and touchdown...

    Getty Inept first-down execution and slow first-quarter starts have become a headache for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and the Denver Broncos' offense. As the hated Las Vegas Raiders invade Empower Field at Mile Stadium for their October 17 matchup with the Denver Broncos, it should be noted that both squads have been reeling as of late. Denver and Las Vegas both started the season winning their first three games, respectively, but since, they’re both now on two-game losing streaks. The Raiders (3-2) have issues on and off the field, as it’s been well documented, while the matters that have plagued the Broncos (3-2) have been mostly self-inflicted on-field troubles.

    Chicago Bears beat Las Vegas Raiders in Khalil Mack revenge game Usayd Koshul October 10, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Five weeks into the 2021 NFL regular season, the Chicago Bears are over .500 for the first time since December 27th, 2020. Chicago jumped out to an early 14-3 lead in the first half before stalling in the third quarter. The Bears would then add on two field goals in the fourth quarter, courtesy of kicker Cairo Santos. Notable moments from the Bears win included rookie quarterback Justin Fields hitting tight end Jesper Horsted for a two-yard touchdown pass, giving Fields his first NFL touchdown. Running back Damien Williams scored again in the second quarter to cap off a 16 play, 86 yard drive that took nearly eight minutes off the clock.

    Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa had some harsh criticism for officials on Monday night. The Los Angeles Chargers are now 3-1 after defeating the Las Vegas Raiders 28-14 on Monday night. Despite putting an end to the Raiders undefeated season, Chargers star pass-rusher Joey Bosa was not all smiles postgame. Bosa received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after arguing with officials on a missed call and was still seething about it to reporters after the game. When asked about the penalty, he mercilessly tore into the officiating crew. “I didn’t even know they called the f***ing penalty on me because I was fuming,” Bosa said. But, I mean, refs are blind, simple. I’m sorry, but you’re blind, like open your eyes and do your job. It’s so bad it’s unbelievable.”Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Joey Bosa calls officials patheticYikes, tell us how you really feel Bosa.

    Unfortunately for folks who bet on the Las Vegas Raiders to cover against the Miami Dolphins, things just didn’t go their way on Sunday.  The showdown between the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins turned out to be a great one, with things needing to go to overtime. In the end, the Raiders were able to record a heart-stopping 31-28 win. While that’s good news for Las Vegas, it wasn’t so great for those who had the Raiders at -3.5 points for the spread, per Wynnbet. Late in the fourth quarter, things looked promising, but Jacoby Brissett and the Dolphins had other ideas.

    Henry Ruggs III, Las Vegas Raiders. (Mandatory Credit: Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports) The Las Vegas Raiders can improve to 3-0 with a Week 3 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Through the first two weeks of the 2021 NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders are one of only seven undefeated teams left. While the Silver and Black needed overtime to beat the Baltimore Ravens at home in Week 1, they did not really have much of an issue putting away the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road in Week 2. Las Vegas is in a great spot to move to 3-0 when the Miami Dolphins come to town. However, these five players must play well if the Raiders want to remain undefeated heading into October.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Derek Carr threw for 382 yards and two touchdowns, including a 61-yard strike to Henry Ruggs midway through the fourth quarter, and the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-17 on Sunday. Carr completed 28 of 37 passes against a Pittsburgh defense that finished the game without a handful of starters, including All-Pro outside linebacker T.J. Watt, who exited in the second quarter with a groin injury. The Steelers (1-1) lost defensive tackle Tyson Alualu in the first quarter and played the entire game without veteran cornerback Joe Haden and inside linebacker Devin Bush, both of whom were inactive with groin injuries of their own. Ben Roethlisberger passed for 295 yards for Pittsburgh, including a 25-yard catch-and-run early in the fourth quarter that rookie running back Najee Harris turned into the first touchdown of his career. The Raiders (2-0) responded immediately. Carr uncorked a rainbow down the middle of the field, giving Ruggs plenty of time to run away from Pittsburgh’s Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ahkello Witherspoon and into the end zone. RAMS 27, COLTS 24...

    (CNN)Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib savored a "special night" Monday as he became the first openly gay NFL player to feature in a regular season game. Nassib starred in the Raiders' thrilling 33-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens -- the first game with fans at Allegiant Stadium -- and produced a decisive strip sack on Ravens quarterback Lemar Jackson in overtime. That play set up the game-winning touchdown for the Raiders as wide receiver Zay Jones caught Derek Carr's 31-yard pass."It was really special. I'm really happy that we got the win on the day that kind of made a little bit of history which was really nice to do," Nassib told reporters.

The recent years have been good to the Ravens and not so good for the franchise that now calls Sin City its home. Baltimore is one of four teams in the league that has reached the playoffs at least three consecutive years. On the other hand, the Raiders have been to the playoffs once (2016) since ’03. A year ago, Jon Gruden’s club got off to 6-3 start only to wilt down the stretch. That collapse had a familiar ring to it given the team won six of its first 10 games in 2019 and missed the playoffs.

This will mark the fourth season Jon Gruden has been back at the helm of the Raiders. Conversely, it is also the fourth season of the Lamar Jackson era of the Ravens offense.

    SANTA CLARA — What was Kyle Shanahan thinking? The 49ers beat the Las Vegas Raiders 34-10 Sunday at Levi’s Stadium, yet Shanahan got out-coached by Jon Gruden. It’s a declaration that sounds ridiculous on its face, but hear me out. There is only one thing that matters in the last game of the exhibition season in terms of risk-reward. Shanahan, a year after injuries ruined the 49ers’ season, risked injury to players he can’t afford to lose if the 49ers hope to make a run at the Super Bowl. Gruden left anyone that mattered at home. Didn’t even bring them on the short flight from Las Vegas to San Jose to stand on the sidelines and pretend that they cared. Derek Carr, Darren Waller, Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow, Brian Edwards, Josh Jacobs and their entire offensive line. Yannick Ygakoue, Maxx Crosby, Cory Littleton, Casey Hayward Jr., Trayvon Mullen, Tre’von Moehrig and Jonathan Abram were among those excused on defense.

    The NFL Schedule release has revealed the three Thanksgiving games for the 2021 season. The NFL schedule release marks one step closer to the return of football as fans can start planning what dates each of the league’s regular-season matchups will take place. The Raiders are a marquee attraction for the NFL and it makes sense that the league opted to stick them on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. Dallas had a down year in 2020 but will look to bounce back behind a healthy Dak Prescott alongside a reloaded defense. The last time these teams met on Thanksgiving was in 2013 when the Cowboys beat the Raiders, who were then based in Oakland, 31-24. Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints The primetime matchup will feature the Bills traveling to New Orleans to take on the Saints in a showcase for the post-Drew Brees era.

    Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill did not all have their minds and bodies taken over by aliens. So, there must be some other logical explanation for what happened when the Chiefs’ explosive offense suddenly hit the skids for a half in a 40-32 loss to the Raiders on Oct. 11. That Week 5 defeat remains Mahomes’ only loss in his last 27 starts. To understand how the Raiders temporarily solved Mahomes and what the Buccaneers might borrow from the blueprint in Super Bowl 2021, The Post watched the coaches’ film of the game and enlisted the help of two avid film analysts — NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger and NBC Sports’ Chris Simms. In a game that featured 72 points and 903 yards of offense, the focus is on the four third-down plays and the one fourth-down play that caused the Chiefs — the NFL’s top offense in first downs (25) and yards (415.8) per game — to go scoreless on their first four second-half possessions: Three punts and an interception. “They played two-deep safeties and press...

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert called his own number Thursday night to beat the Las Vegas Raiders. With time winding down in overtime and the Chargers sitting right outside the end zone, Herbert ran a QB sneak and jumped the line to win the game 30-27.

    The Raiders trusted their defense Sunday night and paid for it with elimination from the playoff race. Justin Herbert completed a 53-yard pass to Jalen Guyton against Keisan Nixon to set up the Chargers at the 1, and then Herbert scored on quarterback sneak for the winning touchdown. Marcus Mariota came off the bench to lead the Raiders in the absence of quarterback Derek Carr, passing for 226 yards and rushing for 88, but when Daniel Carlson kicked a 23-yard field goal on fourth-and-goal from the 4, it set up the Chargers with a chance to win the game. By overtime rules, a touchdown, rather than a field goal, would have won the game for the Raiders. Trayvon Mullen was called for a 20-yard pass interference penalty for Herbert found Guyton open to the 2-yard line. The Raiders scored on a 35-yard pass from Mariota to Darren Waller, a 23-yard field goal by Carlson, a 1-yard dive by Josh Jacobs and a 2-yard leap by Mariota. The Chargers got a 10-yard pass from Herbert to...
    Derek Carr. AP Photo/Adam Hunger Derek Carr and the Raiders pulled off a miraculous Hail Mary to beat the Jets on Sunday. The Hail Mary was made possible by the Jets' baffling decision to send an all-out blitz against Carr, leaving wide receiver Henry Ruggs III with just one man to beat. After the game, Carr said he "couldn't believe" the Jets gifted them such an easy chance to win the game. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders had no business winning on Sunday against the New York Jets. Trailing the winless Jets 28-24 with just seconds remaining, the Raiders were down to their final throws on Sunday, in desperate need of a miracle. Their prayers were answered in shocking fashion. From just past midfield and third-and-10 with just 13 seconds remaining, Carr dropped back and was met with an all-out "Cover 0" blitz from the Jets defense. With so many defenders chasing after Carr, wide receiver Henry Ruggs III — the fastest player of the 2020 NFL draft —...
    Gregg Williams paid for his decision to blitz Derek Carr with his job Monday morning. The New York Jets defensive coordinator was fired according to multiple outlets including the NFL Network, ESPN and The Athletic in the aftermath of the Raiders 31-28 win at the Meadowlands. The Raiders won when quarterback Derek Carr correctly read a maximum blitz, changed the pass protection, and found a crease in the pocket to throw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III with five seconds remaining. To call a blitz with seven- or eight men (it’s been reported both ways) is exceedingly rare when all the Jets needed was to play deep over the top and keep the Raiders inbounds to win. Williams, as well as head coach Adam Gase, are likely out the door following a season in which the Jets could finish as the second 0-16 team in in NFL history. The call was a hot topic on social and mainstream media, with even some extreme speculation that the Jets lost on purpose to help make sure...

The combination of backup running backs Ty Johnson and Josh Adams proved to be effective against Las Vegas. The duo only saw significant action because starter Frank Gore exited with a concussion after the second play of the game. Johnson rushed for 104 yards on 22 carries and scored his first career touchdown with 5:34 left to give the Jets a lead they would blow in the final seconds. Adams had 74 yards on eight carries. The Jets ran for 206 yards as a team, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. “I think they did a great job,” Jets coach Adam Gase said. “We were looking to rotate all three of those guys. Those two guys did a really good job of going in there and being ready...
    The Las Vegas Raiders needed to alter their style when they finally broke through last month with their first win in Kansas City in eight years. Derek Carr delivered the most prolific deep passing game of his career, coach Jon Gruden called for two successful fourth-down gambles and a much-maligned defense came up with a couple of key defensive stops to outpace Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Pulling off the season sweep against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs (8-1) will be an even taller task for the Raiders (6-3) on Sunday night. “They’re the world champions. You have to do whatever it takes to try and win the game,” Gruden said. “That particular day, it just seemed to be a shootout. There’s no guarantee we’re going to make a first down this time. We’ll see how it goes.” Carr, who has been criticized throughout his career for being too quick to check the ball down, was as aggressive as ever during the 40-32 win in Week 5. His 219 yards passing on deep throws were 79 more than...

When the Kansas City Chiefs visit Las Vegas to take on the Raiders not only will a longtime AFC West rivalry be renewed, but it will give the Raiders a chance to give the Chiefs only their second loss of the season, after beating them back in Week 5. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports If you were to compile a list of the NFL's 10 best quarterbacks, Derek Carr probably wouldn't be on that list. Top 16? Maybe. Top 20? Sure, why not? But in the 2020 season, there's something going on with Jon Gruden's quarterback that should have you looking twice. Through Week 5, among starting quarterbacks, Carr ranks first in completion rate (73.1%), eighth in yards (1,440), tied with Teddy Bridgewater for sixth in yards per attempt (8.2), and he's thrown 11 touchdown...
    The Chiefs seem to have some extra motivation to take down the Raiders this Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs are 8-1 this season and appear to be Super Bowl favorites yet again. But the team hasn’t been perfect and the one loss on the year is evidence. The Las Vegas Raiders came to Arrowhead in Week 5 and took home a dramatic 40-32 victory. Oh, that was not all. The team also took some victory laps around the stadium in their bus following the win and that has clearly ticked off plenty of people in Kansas City. Andy Reid already spoke about the disrespect and Travis Kelce echoed those words as well.

    The Raiders reach the midway point of the season Sunday with a three-game stretch during which they can stand up and be counted as legitimate playoff contenders and a factor the AFC West. The last time the Raiders won their division was 2002, their third title in three years. And even with a win in the bank against four-time defending division champion Kansas City, it’s an outside shot at best for 2020, given the Raiders’ 4-3 record and with the Super Bowl champion Chiefs at 7-1. With the next three games coming within the division, the Raiders can at least lay claim to the most likely second playoff team ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos. First up are the Chargers at SoFi Stadium, followed Denver and the Chiefs, with the latter two games at Allegiant Stadium. The Chargers are a dangerous 2-5 in that they’ve shown the ability to build big leads only to fritter them away. For four straight games, the Chargers have lost after leading by at least 16 points —...
    CLEVELAND (AP/CBS13) — Derek Carr had no idea where his passes were going or what the weather was doing. On the shores of Lake Erie, both were wildly unpredictable Sunday. “It was ridiculous,” said the Las Vegas quarterback. “It rained. It sleeted. It snowed. It was snowing sideways. The wind, who knows what it was?” But the winter-like weather didn’t stop Carr or the Raiders. The Browns didn’t offer them much resistance either. Carr threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow early in the fourth quarter, Daniel Carlson kicked three field goals in nasty conditions and the Raiders controlled the clock in a 16-6 win over Cleveland. Las Vegas coach Jon Gruden spent the week preparing his team for inclement weather. The Raiders didn’t just survive in it, they thrived. “We kept talking about how we struggled playing on the road last year in bad weather against the Jets and the Chiefs,” Gruden said. “We kind of enjoyed it. I think our guys look forward to the challenge of the weather more than anything.” Carr’s strike to Renfrow with 14:53...
    The temperature was in the low 40s with winds gusting more than 35 miles per hour with some freezing rain thrown in for good measure. Perfect football weather for the Raiders, as it turned out. Controlling the line of scrimmage on offense and with the defense more than holding its own, the Raiders beat the host Cleveland Browns 16-6 Sunday. Running back Josh Jacobs led a 208-yard rushing effort and quarterback Derek Carr managed the elements beautifully as the Raiders improved to 4-3 and dropped the playoff hopeful Browns to 5-3. One week after gaining 17 yards on 10 carries against Tampa Bay, Jacobs had 128 yards on 31 carries. Carr completed 15 of 24 passes for 112 yards with no turnovers and had 41 yards in scramble yardage. Daniel Carlson kicked field goals of 29, 33 and 24 yards for the Raiders and Carr threw a 4-yard pass to Hunter Renfrow early in the fourth quarter. Cleveland had field goals of 41 and 38 yards from Cody Parkey as quarterback Baker Mayfield and...
    We’ll have a better idea Sunday if the Raiders’ hopes of being on the playoff fringe are legitimate or just another cruel joke played upon a tortured but loyal fan base. Same goes for the host Cleveland Browns. The Browns have had 12 consecutive losing seasons, and last made the playoffs in 2002 — the same year the Raiders won the AFC championship — losing their wild card game after going 9-7. Cleveland went 10-6 in 2007 and still didn’t make the playoffs. So here sit the Browns at 5-2 under rookie head coach Kevin Stefanski, just three years removed from the 0-16 Hue Jackson and having fired last year’s coach Freddie Kitchens after one 6-10 season.. Is it real or a mirage? Upon closer inspection, Cleveland has beaten just one team with a winning record, defeating Indianapolis (currently 4-2). When Cleveland played the top two teams in the AFC North, Baltimore (5-1) and Pittsburgh (6-0), they lost by a combined score of 76-13. The Browns own a pair of wins over Cincinnati (1-5-1) as...
    The Raiders have been swatted on the nose with a rolled up newspaper. We’ll see what kind of dog they’ll be in the fight Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Allegiant Stadium. Anyone else think it was a little unusual that instead of having their game delayed because of COVID-19 concerns, as has happened in with other teams, the Raiders instead will play on the same day more than four hours earlier? Raiders fans love a good conspiracy, but good luck trying to prove it this time. After accruing more than $500,000 in team and individual fines stemming from violations regarding coronavirus protocols, the Raiders didn’t exactly get the beneift of the doubt when their entire offensive line and safety Johnathan Abram went on the COVID-19 reserve list this week. Tackle Trent Brown, who tested positive for the virus, reportedly without symptoms, won’t play. Neither will Abram, who was in contact with Brown Tuesday and couldn’t get in five days of negative tests during his quarantine period before kickoff. Four other linemen — left...

    Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will not go unbeaten in their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions. The Las Vegas Raiders sent the Chiefs to their first loss since Nov. 10 of last season at Tennessee — ending KC’s 13-game winning streak, including last year’s postseason run to the NFL title — with a 40-32 victory at Arrowhead Stadium. “It’s a learning lesson, if you don’t play your best football you can lose football games in this league,” Mahomes said. “We tried to battle at the end, but when you don’t play at a high level against good football teams, you’re gonna lose.” Derek Carr threw for 347 yards and three touchdowns to outduel Mahomes, highlighted by a 72-yard strike in the second quarter to rookie first-round pick Henry Ruggs III. Josh Jacobs also scored twice in the second half for the Raiders (3-2), who converted a fourth-and-1 from the Kansas City 44-yard line on a sneak by Carr to seal the game with less than two minutes remaining.
